You came to hear comedians’ jokes, and in front of your eyes – a surprise: they are completely naked on stage. And this is not a dream, but a reality in one New York club. The so-called sex-positive community gathers in it, which is not at all afraid of naked people. For more than a year, there have been nude performances by comedians. Their organizer and himself bravely walk naked in the stage and assures that the audience quickly gets used to such a seemingly unusual sight.
“Nudity is less shocking because the audience forgets you’re naked after 30 to 90 seconds,” says comedian and organizer Billy Procida.
According to comedians, whether you are naked or not is the most important goal of entertaining the audience. And not necessarily about obscenities.
“You can tell jokes about sex, but it’s still not like… I don’t know how to explain it. To be honest, I often forget that I’m naked on stage until, for example, I put my hand on my hip, and then I feel that my hand is so cold,” says comedian Chloe Cunha.
According to the participants of the naked jokes party, standing naked on stage means completely opening up to the audience.
“You are what you want to be seen with your clothes. And by appearing naked, I can show what I really am. I think I’m as honest as possible when I’m on this stage,” says comedian Tracy McClendon.
True, only men and women who have reached the age of 21 can enter such comedy parties. Naked comedian parties are not a huge new thing in the United States – for example, there have been annual naked comedian nights near Boston for at least seventeen years. However, it can be said that this tradition does not inspire the comedians of our country yet.
